Alarming News: I like Morgan Freeberg. A lot.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: We were following a trackback and thinking "hmmm... this is a bloody excellent post!", and then we realized that it was just part III of, well, three...Damn. I wish I'd written those.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: ...I just remembered that I found a new blog a short while ago, House of Eratosthenes, that I really like. I like his common sense approach and his curiosity when it comes to why people believe what they believe rather than just what they believe.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is an intriguing guy...[he] asks great questions and answers others with style, flair, reason and wit. On the blogroll he goes. Make him a part of your regular blogospheric reading. I certainly will.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is brilliant.
Common Sense Junction: Misha @ Anti-Idiotarian never ceases to amaze me. He keeps finding other good blogs. I went over to A.I. this morning for my daily Misha fix and he had found this guy named Morgan Freeberg in Fair Oaks, California, that has a blog, House of Eratosthenes. Freeberg says its "The Blog That Nobody Reads" but it may now become the blog that everybody reads.
Jaded Haven: Good God, Morgan, you cover a topic from front to back with a screwy thoroughness I find mind boggling. I'm in awe of your thought proccesses, my friend, you're an exceptional talent. You start by throwing in the kitchen sink, tie in someone's syphilitic uncle, bend around a rip tide of brilliance and bring it all home in a neat, diamond dripping package of an exceptionally readable moment of damn fine wordsmithing. I love reading you.
Mein Blogovault: Make "the Blog that No One Reads" one of your daily reads.
Philmon: When Morgan meanders, stick with him - he's got a point and it'll be worth it in the end. He's not a hit-and-run snarky quip kind of guy. The pieces all fall into place like tumblers in a lock and bang! He's opened a cognative door for you.
Rightlinx: Morgan at House of Eratosthenes is one of the best writers out there. I read him nearly every day because he manages to provide an interesting perspective, even though I don't always agree.
Poetic Justice: Cletus! Ah gots a laiv one fer yew...
Hmmm…this is not sounding like any of the classroom conversations we had back in my day.
“As a teacher, I’m not supposed to allow you to disrespect the President.”
This is just one example of a troubling trend: We’ve got a lot of these people running around, offering this argument that someone won an election in 2008 and this somehow means we aren’t allowed to say certain things or think certain things.
They don’t seem to have thought this out very well at all, and their definition of “disrespect” seems to be expanding to include anything not flattering. You know…somehow, I don’t think that’s how it’s supposed to work.
I’m also rather put off by how these classroom conversations are going nowadays. Teacher wants to make a big show out of things she cannot and will not allow to be said in her classroom — I’m hearing a lot of other things over which such an issue could be made in this recording, that don’t even seem to be registering as blips on the ol’ radar. I’d have gotten detention and my folks would have heard about it, if I called someone a “son-of-a-bitch.” Looks like those rules have fallen by the wayside.
But you can’t talk your smack about Barry O.
